Datebook: June 27 – Siebenschläfertag
In Germany, June 27 is Siebenschläfertag (Seven Sleepers Day). The weather on that day is supposed to determine the average weather of the next seven weeks. This is one of the most well-known bits of traditional farmers’ weather lore remaining in today’s Germany, but quite inaccurate in practice. Besides, if this were true, then the next seven weeks might be cloudy, dreary and wet. Let’s hope they’re wrong!
It’s Monday, June 27
